You can live in the fast lane and hope you dont crash, or go easy and live another day..
Where i come from we adopted the socialistic culture, marxism you can call it.. It offers plenty, but so does capitalism..
We had a testrun of capitalism in the Nordic nations, hope went up with those who knew how to use a system based on good faith.. It was used and they did use it, they used it to the extent that the system started breaking from the inside out, not from the outside..
But capitalism also had its ups, the parasites on the system started to die.. But when the solution turns on itself its called an autonomous disease and it needs treatment..
There is never an easy fix for a society and a culture to venture forth, but knowing where to go, a long-term planning offers society a future..
Capitalism doesnt, it offers now.. Live up to the hype or die..

Where i come from, a tree stands still 9558 years old, cause we know how to plan for a tomorrow..
But its also a culture known to outlive any other.

That's beautiful. Reminds me of what I heard someone saying the other day, I paraphrase "regions are home, nations are projection."

Haha this made me think, I know what comes with my regional background, bavarian.
And yes, I am embarrassed, but what can you do right? We like to drink, we are all of this. Are smaller regions the solution? Probably not, even my family is embarrassing. But ideas. I think we can agree on a few.
"Und a Preiß wenn grad sei Mei aufmacht, dann hot er Pech ghabt dann spuckt er Bluad"
That's Hans Söllner and it's sarcasm. He sees the racism.
On some level we all are. That's maybe what we should agree on, break it down to who we are, what we like, not what we are against, but what we are for.
Break down to regions have referendum for every fundamental decision, the groundbreaking moments. Because it doesn't work, you can't leave the control in the hands of a certain group and that group alone. They betray a few, naturally.
Culture should be regional, giving identity, but also maybe the idea is more important. Not the person.
I think we are so desperately looking for culture because we are no movement. Beer, octoberfest
is that culture? We need help, seriously.
